Here’s How to Tell if You’re Having a Panic Attack or Just Stressed Out

Stressed out? Have you experienced a panic attack? Do you know the difference? A panic attack will have you dizzy, sweating, short of breath, chills, hot flashes, or possibly feeling like you are choking. Most panic attacks last about 10 minutes. Stopping one will involve going to a quiet place, sit down and breathe slowly. If you are consistently getting symptoms of a panic attack you should consult with your doctor as they may be able to help you find a therapist to help you though these attacks.

Key Takeaways:

  • Sometimes, though, stress becomes a terrifying, full-body experience — that’s a panic attack.
  • That lack of a clear trigger is a big part of what can make episodes so disconcerting.
  • If you keep having panic attacks, ask your doctor to recommend a therapist, who can target coping strategies for your symptoms.

“Most panic attacks are over in about 10 minutes, according to the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine.”
